Dear Parrot Lover,
Are you the new owner of a parrot that has no clue how to properly care for your new parrot? Perhaps you are a first-time parrot owner? Or maybe you’ve owned birds and parrots before but want to make sure that you have all the correct and up-to-date information on raising a happy parrot?
Raising a happy parrot is both fun and easy – as long as you have the necessary know-how, such as:
- Prevent your parrot from falling ill by making sure that they have adequate nutrition that is formulated for their particular age
and species. Do not feed an African Grey food that is meant for a Parakeet! Similarly, do not feed a baby parrot food that should only be fed to adult parrots.
- Just like in humans, certain types of food can affect your parrot’s
moods. You will have to do some research on your own to find out what these foods are for your parrot’s species.
- Although well-formulated pellets should be a part of every parrot’s
diet, regardless of their age or species, try to avoid feeding brightly colored pellets in large quantities. These colorful pellets are actually dyed with sugary food coloring and too much sugar can be bad for your parrot’s health.
- Learn how to set up a proper home environment for your parrot. Never
place your parrot’s cage in the kitchen. Teflon coated pots and pans emit invisible fumes that can kill your parrot. Instead place the cage in the family room where your parrot can be real part of your family.
- Purchase the largest cage that you can possible afford, as this will be an investment in your parrot’s future. Your parrot should be able to open his wings all the way and turn around in his cage without any feathers from his wings, tail or head touching any part of the cage bars.
- Make sure that the cage bars are the right size for your parrot’s feet. If the bars are too small your parrot’s toes and nails can accidentally be caught and your parrot will become injured. But if the bars are too wide apart, then your parrot may get his head stuck or, if he is small enough, he can wiggle out of the cage and escape.
- Find a local Avian Certified Veterinarian and take your parrot for a Well-Bird Exam every year.
- Talk to your vet about clipping your parrot’s nails and wings. Ask the vet to show you how to do it so that you can do it at home.
- While at the Vet, ask for suggestions on putting together a First Aid Kit just for your parrot. Your Vet may be able to give you a few free samples. Make sure that you also include small scissors and septic powder too to stop any blood flow.
- Be sure to interact with your parrot every day and allow him out of his cage daily for a minimum of two hours. Set aside special bonding time so that you can improve your relationship with your parrot. Proper socialization early on can lead to a very well-adjusted and happy parrot in the future.
